Uncle Julio's

Recently a good friend had her birthday celebration at Uncle Julio's (  Honestly, I was a little worried when I saw the evite, thinking it would be another dining experience of enviously watching everyone else eat delicious food.

The need to be Gluten Free is forcing me to be a little more forthright and outgoing than I am used to. So, determined I am going to try and make the best of it, I called a day before event around 4pm thinking it would be in-between the lunch and dinner rushes.

Both the girl who answered and the manger she later passed me off to, claimed my "phone was cutting out" and they could barely hear me, but considering all the din I could hear from their end, I knew it wasn't me and low and behold once the manager moved to another (quieter) area, there was no issue at all.  Needless to say, I was a little put off by their customer service.. and wasn't getting my hopes up that they would accommodate.

However, the manager did state that items without the marinades, corn tortillas, and the grilled fish would all be safe.  He also verified that the chips were made from corn, but did share fryer with other gluten containing items.

As mentioned, my expectations were set low.. but I was pleasantly surprised!  The wait staff was phenomenal and very patient as I asked about the menu, and considering we were a party of 20, I find that to be a BIG plus.  I ordered the chicken fajita (sans tortillas) and ate a few of the chips from communal bowl.  The food was fantastic, service was great, I highly recommend!
